Graped.

Vinogirl is well in the swing of things now that the growing season in Napa has truly begun and will no doubt be setting the scene for another historic vintage Here as can be seen, my own little effort towards a future grape harvest has finely begun and will no doubt reward my tender care with large quantities of juicy grapes....on the other hand maybe they will succumb to a myriad of bug attacks and simply cark it...you decide.

Putz...sorry to hear about the late snow! Jesus turned water into wine at Cana so if it was good enough for him who am I to argue.

You've made an excellent choice of grape variety, Squire Thud. If Black Hamburg was good enough for Capability Brown (no relation to our present PM, obviously) to plant at Hampton Court Palace then it will do well at Thud Towers. If you have room for another grape vine, I would recommend Boskoop Glory.

Gallimaufry....Ta for that bit of info,I've enough room for another couple of candidates so I'll keep an eye out for the Boskoop.

Found you through Phlegmmy's blog and have spent the past few days working my way through your archive. A wonderful way to spend some time. :)

Keep up the good work, and keep the pictures coming!
